Extras, Weight and Value
This is a no frills helmet that is designed and manufactured to the highest standards. When you hold and wear one, it is perfectly molded and there’s attention to detail. Protection is solid and it just looks good with so many colors and combinations available.
Bottom line is it looks great and is manufactured to the highest standards. There three options including:
Trabec – $150 for the standard model.
Trabec Race – $180 for more aramid fibers for added protection.
Trabec Race MIPS – $220 for MIPS technology that adds front to rear rotation to reduce concussion.
Unfortunately, helmet laws prevent the measurement and data claims by the manufacturer for added protection provided by the higher end models. So the buyer has to decide on their safety/price threshold somewhat blindly. And since all the helmets look exactly alike, only the colors differentiate the models.
Rear retention tightening system is somewhat simplistic with no ratcheting wheel. But it does work and it can be operated with one hand with some practice.
It’s not the lightest or the most full-featured helmet around and it is rather expensive. But a distinctive design, attention to quality and a commitment to safety research is making this one of the most popular helmets in the All Mountain scene.
